Is it just getting half a million from a Russian is proof of those things?


Why would you even question if this is suspicious?! What kind of person thinks it's normal to get paid huge sums of money from foreign governments and corporations?


Is this a serious question?

You are adept at evading questions though.
Bravo.

I still don't see where he says he used SAR reports.




Rich Delmar, a counsel to the IG, said that in response to media reports, the office was “inquiring into allegations” that Suspicious Activity Reports on Cohen’s banking transactions were “improperly disseminated.”

Yes. I know. That's in the OP. That's what this thread is about. Those allegations sparking an IG inquiry.

You know what an allegation is, right?

Do all of these Michael Cohen's bank at the same bank?
Doubtful. So how then were there mistakes in the
deposit amounts?


A logical conclusion is someone at The U.S. Treasury
ran a report on "Michael Cohen" and then leaked it to Avenatti.


More:



-- claiming that some of the supposed evidence involved the wrong Michael Cohen. In a letter to U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood, who is overseeing proceedings in a federal criminal investigation of Cohen, attorneys Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison accused Avenatti of publishing "numerous incorrect statements to the public in an apparent attempt to prejudice and discredit Mr. Cohen."

So, just a matter of attacking the messenger?

More a case of considering the source and expecting legal adherence from a lawyer.

Evidence says no, they do not. So then he is illegally in possession
and illegally disseminated banking information that is also
inaccurate.

Two of the allegedly “fraudulent” payments were made to men named Michael Cohen who have no affiliation with Trump. One payment is a $4,250 wire transfer from a Malaysian Actuarial Partners to a bank in Toronto. The other is a $980 transfer from a Kenyan bank to Bank Hapoalim a bank in Israel.


Zainal Kassim, a representative for Actuarial Partners, told The Daily Caller News Foundation Avenatti’s report is a case of mistaken identity. He forwarded an email the falsely accused Michael Cohen sent to Avenatti requesting the lawyer “correct this error forthwith and make it known publicly” there is no connection to Trump’s Michael Cohen.

“You are surely aware of the fact that this is an extremely common name and would request that you take care before involving innocent parries in this sordid affair,” wrote Cohen, who told Avenatti he is an international consultant who was paid by Actuarial Partners for work on a project in Tanzania. “Actuarial Partners have already received inquiries from the press in this regard, and we would like to see this scurrilous rumour spiked as soon as possible.” Haaretz, the Israeli news outlet, found another case of mistaken identity in Avenatti’s report. “Mr. Cohen received one wire transfer in the amount of $980.00 from a Kenyan bank from account holders Netanel Cohen and Stav Hayun to an account in Israel at Bank Hapoalim,” Avenatti wrote.

Haaretz caught up with Netanel Cohen, who acknowledged having a bank account in Kenya and transferring money to a Michael Cohen. But the Michael Cohen in questions is his brother, Netanel told the news outlet. And his brother is not Trump’s lawyer. “I’ve never heard of Michael Cohen, and I have no connection to this affair,” Netanel told Haaretz.

Maybe some flunkie on Mueller's team did a rush job and handed
him underacted documents?

If I were the investigator, that is what I would conclude...

Yes, it's what has been leveled at Trump and anyone associated with him, without any real evidence other than wild speculation, for the past year and a half.

The difference is that in this case there is evidence. Avernatti published it.

For example? Since I said "rarely" several examples would be in order.

I love how you are hanging on this like it’s the “smoking gun”. Be honest if this Info was sooo important to mueller why did he pawn Cohen off on New York da?? Mueller has access to these rocords and obviously was so impressed by this “ collusion” he pawed it off on someone else??

Is that really what you and others are saying?? That mueller gave away his smoking gun?? Give me a break. You’re obviously not as smart as you give yourself credit for...

I actually don't see much to support the "collusion" thing. It seems this is mostly Cohen's own doing, after the election.

Aw. That's not nice.

You misunderstood.

I was saying that not all of the speculation is as wild as some of it.
